Watermelon Italian Ice. A fresh idea to differently taste watermelon: cold watermelon, with cream, mint and chocolate chips.



    Recipe: Dessert

    Cuisine: Italian

    Serving: 5 glasses

  • 750 g watermelon
  • chocolate chips
  • 1 vanilla bean
  • 2 ts agar agar
  • 100 g sugar
  • fresh mint
  • fresh cream
  • powdered sugar
  • pistachios (optional)
  • cinnamon (optional)


Remove seeds from the watermelon and blend it with sugar and vanilla seeds. Put it in a saucepan and cook over a gentle heat, stirring with a whisk. Mix with agar agar, and bring the mixture to a boil while stirring constantly. Once it boils, let it cook for two minutes. Turn off, wait for it to cool, add the chocolate chips and put it in the shot glasses.

Let stand in refrigerator for 1 hour at least, until the mixture has thickened.

Whip the cream (very cold) with a couple of tablespoons of powdered sugar and a pocket for cakes, garnish the surface of the ice. Add the mint leaves and serve.

Tasty alternative? Coarsely chop the pistachios into glasses and sprinkle with cinnamon powder. Enjoy!
